Preparation for your special event 

 

Makeup

  • Makeup and hair inspirational images (please send before the appointment)

  • Wash your face in the morning and moisturize with your favorite moisturizer. (SPF is allowed)

  • For flawless makeup, it starts with healthy skin. Please exfoliate (and your lips) at least once a week.

  • Moisturize every night to keep your skin hydrated. (try a hydrating mask)

  • Airbrush makeup will not work well if you have dry or dead skin

  • Drinks lots of water

  • Bride -  bring a few lip colors to choose from. This will be the same color you use for touch-ups. 

  • Others - Bring the color of your choice for touch-up

 

Hair

  • Wash your hair the night before, use light conditioner if you have extremely coarse frizzy hair. If your hair tends to get oily, washing your hair in the morning will be okay. 

  • If you have oily hair, Do NOT use conditioner and wash your hair morning of your event. 

  • We will have extensions here; your artist will discuss details with you.

  • Be sure to blow dry your hair upwards/upside down.  

  • Please have your hair DRY prior to working with us. (we do NOT carry blow dyers or have time scheduled to dry your hair).

  • Lots of women like to tie their hair back. This will be okay, however, please be sure to tie a high ponytail, never low.

  • If possible, wear a zip or button top to prevent messing up your makeup/hair. Try for a top that matches the outfit you plan on wearing for your special event. 

  • Bridal Trial - If you hair accessories, bring those with you. (veil, hair pins, flowers, etc)

 

Touch up kit suggestions:

 

  • Lip color

  • Blush - Feel free to pick a color of your choice.  Be sure it is powder based.

  • Loose Powder - great for absorbing oily zones

  • Oil blotting paper - Also great for absorbing oily zones

  • Eyelash glue - The brand I use is called, "Duo."

  • Hairspray and hairpins

  • Bring straws to avoid retouch of the lipstick. 

  • Safety pins, scissors
